Event Details

Kon Wapos Lodge Contingent to the 2020
National Order of the Arrow Conference





Where: Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI
When: August 3-8, 2020
Who: Any registered member of Kon Wapos Lodge with a current BSA registration.
How: Register below now to reserve your spot.


National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is a biennial event by Arrowmen for Arrowmen. It’s like a shorter Jamboree without cooking, tents, or muddy trails. And you’ll get lots of resources you can bring back to your home unit and the lodge to build a stronger program so all your friends can have more fun, too. NOAC features unforgettable fellowship, training, adventure and fun activities for Arrowmen of all ages and interests, and you get to meet some amazing people from across the nation.

NOAC is at Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI on August 3-8, 2020.  We will be departing the evening of Sunday, August 2 and returning on Saturday, August 8. On our way, we will take the SS Badger car ferry from Manitowoc to Luddington. The pick-up and drop-off schedule will be determined during the summer of 2020 based on where contingent members live.

Sound like a great deal? Let’s Get Started!

Reserve your spot by registering to the right. Youth will be asked to submit a $100 non-refundable but transferable deposit to secure their spot. Adult applicants will not be asked to submit a deposit at this time, as we want to be sure all youth get the opportunity to attend. Adults may ensure their spots by recruiting a youth member (under age 21) to attend and that youth indicating in their reservation the adult’s name who recruited them. Adults will be notified of their confirmed place in the contingent after the Lodge Leadership Development Conference (LLD) in early December.

National guidelines require at least one adult female delegate attend the conference with the contingent if a youth female attends. If you are a youth female, please encourage adult  female members you know to register as well.

We are in need of patch and apparel designs. Please submit designs to Dave DeLuka at

If you have any questions about the NOAC 2020 contingent from Kon Wapos Lodge, please contact AJ Reicher, contingent adviser, at (262) 355-6512 or

Please note: Youth registrants need to let their unit leadership know their annual membership is being covered by NOAC registration so the unit does not double-pay dues. Youth are those under age 21 on August 3, 2020.
